I figured I’d share a bit of success that I’ve had recently. I just started the Keto diet less than a week ago, but before I ever started doing something to control my weight and health, I wore a size XL, sometimes a 2XL. Today marks the day where I can finally fit into a MEDIUM shirt! I’ve struggled with my weight and confidence for years, and as my weight is getting under control, my confidence is growing.
My main purpose of this post (other than excitement of a new shirt size) is that progress can be slow, but keep being persistent and dedicated in your journey. My journey has been a slow one, but a progressive. I am still not where I want to be but am getting closer each day! Thank you everyone for the love, encouragement, and support.
I’m so addicted to @eatingevolved coconut butter cups 😍🙌🏻 They just taste so dang good 🤤 Especially when topped with creamy peanut butter like I did here the other day 🤩 They are the perfect afternoon pick me up!😄 I love reaching for quality fats around that 3 pm slump time (or anytime I need a snack!) to keep me satiated until dinner. Fats will feed your brain 🧠 (as it’s mostly fat itself) to keep you on your A game through the afternoon and keep you full unlike a piece of sugary fruit or a pastry! 😏 Give it a try and see for yourself 🤩 •
Today was a very successful day if I do say so myself 😅💛 Mom and I went to a super early farmers market this AM and stocked up on some goods for our last week in Orlando 😢❤️❤️ sad to be leaving as I’ve adapted to living here and all the farmers markets lol but I’m soooo ready to be home ❤️ I haven’t lived at home for an extended period of time for the past four years and I’m happy to say I will be there for at least 2 years while I work on some college courses 😊💛🙌🏻 🏡On that college topic.... I worked on my application and all the paperwork for financial aid, etc this afternoon 😍 almost done just need my dang high school transcript which may be hard to get cause #summer but we are trying lol 🤣 I’ll find a way!😏 It’s so very exciting ❤️ I’m ready for this new chapter of my life!!!! Cheers to new beginnings and finding true happiness 😇 (I just need to start saving a sh*t ton of money 😳 lol) •
Anyway happy weekend everyone! 🤗
I have found the perfect granola! It ticks all the boxes ✅ •
@eattroo offer this warmed spiced ginger granola with nuts and seeds. The best bit is that it’s gluten free, low in sugar, great for the gut health AND high in fibre! I had it as a snack today with some @alpro yoghurt and berries. Mum has already got her eyes on it 😂
I love the paper packaging, it’s in my favourite colour and is plastic free !! It’s great when companies think about the world and do what’s best.
This bag offers 7 tasty portions 😋
Blackberry Crumble Cake 🍰 Easiest. Thing. Ever.
Mix 3 pints of fresh berries (blueberries, raspberries or chopped strawberries or any mix of those would work great, I used fresh blackberries) with 1/4 cup of sugar or stevia mix (I use @swervesweetie) if you like it a little sweet and more tart or 1/2 cup if you like it sweeter and less tart and let that sit for 20 minutes. Spray a rectangular glass baking dish and pour in the berries in an even layer. Prepare a box of vanilla cake mix (You can use sugar free or gluten free whatever you want) and our the batter on top of the berries. Add some crushed nuts for extra crunch if you want. Bake until golden brown on top and cooked through (follow the cake mix instructions but watch it more closely).
@barebells Strawberry Supreme Protein Pudding 🍓 Swipe left for video 👈🏻
🐷 Aesthetic: 6/10
Lovely simple packaging and also very handy for on the go. We appreciated that it came with a little spoon, very useful! However, the actual pudding is dissapointing aesthetic wise. The golden colour isn’t too bad but it’s certainly a little gloopy looking.
🐷 Texture: 4/10.
We really struggled with texture, we weren’t sure whether to expect angel delight, rice pudding or just something similar to yogurt? To be honest it’s none of them! It’s slightly lumpy but I don’t think on purpose? Thick in parts then loose and watery in others. Quite bizarre 🤨
🐷 Taste: 5/10.
Strawberry comes through but it’s kinda sweet and kinda chemically at the same time. Difficult one to pinpoint for taste but certainly not anything special unfortunately. We wouldn’t have this again but it was worth a try.
Macros per tub - 200g
You’d definitely can’t complain with that macro split if this is to your taste. We would certainly say try it the product still if you’re after something protein rich for minimal calories/sugar.
